Everyone talks about Theo and Jed in CHI but I'll bet HOU turns things around before the Cubs.
    They've been historically bad during the past three seasons. They are headed into expansion Mets territory in terms of long-term haplessness. This is year six of their slide and they might not have hit bottom yet (because their pitching is a dog's breakfast). The notion that this team is going to do anything positive in the near-term future strikes me as wishful thinking. Looks like a franchise with a slog ahead of it to me.

    As for why spend, so you aren't a 106+ loss team. This franchise is cratering. If I were a Houston fan it would take a minimum of a new owner to get me to see that team. Seriously, my summer sports spend in that city would be directed 100% to the Dynamo (which gets better attendance and local TV ratings).
    Baseball isn't a magic trick ... it doesn't get spoiled if you figure out how it works. - gonelong

    I'm witchcrafting everybody.
